Historical Payment Rates

Historical Payment Rates

Over the years Envato Market has changed fees & rates several times – always in favour of our authoring community! If you have been selling files for some time, these rates may apply to you. If you are a new author, you should review our Current Rates or read about our author program If you are interested in Selling Your Work.

Fee Structure Change

As of September 1st 2014, we've adopted a dual-fee model. You can learn about it on Market Blog.
